of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates
robinson, chuck todd, david faber, and calista gingrich joins us onset. but first, bill karins with a check on the forecast. >> getting out the door this morning, umbrellas needed many areas of the east coast. let me take you up the sea board. we are watching rain this morning moving up in south florida. in miami, dry right now, but you will have heavier rain two or three hours from now. tampa, showers trying to move on to the coastline. also the ft. myers area. we have numerous areas of rain in the carolinas, especially the mountainous areas, asheville to greenville. and some heavier rains moving up through eastern north carolina. washington, d.c., right in the middle right to your screen there. so far, you've been pretty dry. you do have rain to your north, though, up through maryland, and further to the north, also, numerous areas of rain from pittsburgh to state college through harrisburg. eventually this will work its way into new york state and new jersey, but not until later today. i do think you have a dry morning drive around new york city to hartford to philadelphia. but coming ho
? some people say yes including newt gingrich. >> hillary clinton is a serious problem. and barack obama is ambitious person. they are different. hillary clinton gets up every day thinking of public policy. barack obama gets up every day thinking about bark obama . very different approaches to life. i think those of us who are critics need to understand this is who is president. this is a man who in the age of false celebrity hood is a perfect president because he is a false president. he doesn't do the job. he said 39 percent of the briefings and intelligence, he goes to las vegas while there is an attack going on in benghazi. >> if you watch the president you notice he saw the foreign service that chris stevens our ambassador who murdered provided to the united nations and united states as well he talked glowingly of mr. stevens. it is odd that the day he was murdered mr. obama did the fund raising event on the day of the murder. >> brian: i thought it was interesting he said he was a christian and that was news to madonna who called him a black muslim. we are not sure. the speech was
is a joke, but it's quite serious. when i met gingrich i said i hope the election is not lost by the republicans on the color line. it seems like it's almost over although i wish him well. host: an independent scholar, ann in virginia. caller: i will be watching, definitely. in fact, it's probably going to be the highest watched debates ever, just because people are anxious to see what mitt romney will talk about, because he has gone this far and it feels to me like his campaign has been i am not barack obama. we want to hear specifics. i am just concerned and his approach. i just want to see what it's going to be. i voted for the president the last election even though i am independent. there's a lot about the republican platform, the party platform that i agree with and there's a lot about the democratic party platform i don't agree with. but when it comes to leadership, it has been really embarrassing to watch mitt romney. it is just sad. so this will be his chance. peter he will pull it off or not. i am not going to vote for him just because of-principle of- he will pull i
with john t. sick and newt gingrich in 1997, and eat a balanced budget. it got the job done. the balanced the budget. we were paying off debt. the unemployment rate was going down. other than that it did not work. i did not like the welfare bill, because it did not provide the kind of child care support that we needed to provide, and became in in 1997 and did it. i did not require -- i did not oppose people of the kind to have to work. i do not disagree with that position at all. to say that i have opposed spending cuts is inaccurate. i was governor in 1983 when we were in recession. week lowered the tax on food as a consequence of a significant effort by the legislature. it was every interest group in the state that lined up. spend more money here, there. we held the line. in this campaign, i have endorsed republican proposals to cut spending, by conservative senator from oklahoma tom coburn. us on the way to do it. >> you have 30 seconds. >> this piece of legislation was a signature achievement of president clinton. it was a vote against cutting spending. he did not cut spending than. i
the nation talks with crist christi, newt gingrich, and marha blackburn. they are brought to you as a public service by the network and c-span. they began at noon eastern with "meet the press," "this week, fox news sunday, state of the union, and face the nation from cbs. you can listen to them all on c- span radio here in the washington, d.c. area. nationwide on xm satellite radio. you can go online to cspanradio.org. >> every nation has -- generation has sacrificed. we were then spending their money. we are now even more -- much more spending their money. we are leaving them a mass that will be a very difficult to deal with hand. just think of who was to come here first and take us over. the last thing i want to see is our country taken over because we are so financially weak we cannot do anything. we are moving in that direction. we are on the edge of the cliff. we have to start fixing it now. otherwise we are leaving a disaster to our children and grandchildren. we could even lose our country. >> ross perot on the economy, the deficit, and the debt and how it has changed since he ran for
gone to the web and looked up what newt gingrich was talking about. >> another question -- recently, one of mitt romney's operatives made the statement to reporters when they were pushing him on the claim about welfare. we will keep running that, we will not have our campaign did but -- dictated by fact checkers. probably a lot of news people were shocked by the cynicism they heard coming out of his mouth. jim, you have been around the longest -- did this surprise you? >> i really cannot say that i was. they had kind of behave that way all along. they were certainly not hurt -- terribly worried enough to change the rhetoric when something is pointed out to them. >> you mean the romney campaign? >> yes. i do not see a lot of evidence of trimming statements back to make a more accurate when they are repeated -- >> i do not know about that. this is -- my take on this, in the context of that question and answer, they were saying that this is the most effective ad. they said, that got four pinocchios. the response was, we are not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. wh
